About the Author
Kevin Wright

Kevin Wright studied writing at the University of Massachusetts in Lowell and fully utilized his bachelor’s degree by seeking and attaining employment first as a produce clerk and later as an
emergency medical technician and firefighter. His parents were thrilled. For decades now he has studied a variety of martial arts but steadfastly remains not-tough in any way, shape, or form. He just likes to pay money to get beat up, apparently.

Kevin Wright peaked intellectually in the seventh grade. Kevin Wright wrote this bio, and this is how he actually refers to himself while speaking to people, in the third person like some steroid-addled NFL wide receiver. He enjoys reading a little bit of everything and writing sci fi, fantasy, and horror. He does none of it well. Kevin continues to write in his spare time and is currently working on another full length novel.
